-taking that we get. and it's probably true that if we increase the tax rate we will get a rapid contraction in another risk taking but that is a compounding effect that can grow quite large overtime. in the same what if we stopped investing this year, it's not like economy would collapse. it will gradually slow down over time. and so higher payoffs for risk-taking, one is the they increase the bar for success. the united states most talented people work longer hours while their counterparts in europe and japan work fewer hours. the rest of the economy as people have grown richer they've had a reduction in the amount of work that they've done. so that's one of the things that's happened, keeping up with the joneses if you will. that work effort and the risk-taking that it represents creates companies like google and facebook in countless of other companies, innovations that we have enjoyed in the united states more than in europe and japan. and that creates valuable on the job training for our most talented workers. and so again you get the training and increases your probability for success
's about taxes and what is going to happen next year with taxes? the enormous regulatory burden coming out of washington. people don't know how much it's going to cost to have that new employee that they might hire with the health care health care bill or the epa regulations. all of those things that bavarian certainty that's in the marketplace. there was just a survey that came out and said that 67% of small businesses today are not hiring because they don't know what to expect next year. and that is why we have got to have taxes to have some certainty as far as what the regulatory burden is going to be and then we can unleash this economy. we will give people the confidence to hire, to grow their business and to invest and that really is the biggest issue today for small business people certainly and really all businesses. >> moderator: i'm going to stop either congressman and kevin asked to what is the most important and i'm going to ask you what's the worst thing that congress can do right now as it tries to drive economic growth? latham: it's a tossup between increased taxes but i rea
, plant closings, layoffs, outsourcing, income tax returns, cayman islands in the bermudas. they took a baseball bat and beat romney's brains and in the six or seven swing states and that is why his numbers are upside down and that is why he has had so many problems until now. why they did that i don't know. i've been asking that question since june and i just think it was a huge miscalculation and the romney campaign family intervention that politico reported the other day basically tried to introduce him. this is what they should've done and the intervention that was reported was that mrs. romney and tad romney the oldest son of mitt romney went to his father and said you have to change things. is that the essence of of the? >> yeah and the family have wanted to take the charlie cook approach and alluded to the fact that their big bad from the beginning, the stuart steven sperry, the chief strategist very in the campaign was that all you had to be was not obama and that turned out to be wrong. you see it in the different channels they are doing now. no, you have to be yourself and n
, i never have enough money to do it. the middle class needs relief, tax relief, they need help now. the focus will change with barack obama. >> moderator: governor, please, if you want to respond to what he said about -- palin: i'd like to respond about the tax increases. you know, we can speak in agreement that darn right we need tax relief for americans so that jobs can be created here. now, barack obama and senator biden also voted for the largest tax increases in u.s. history. barack had 94 opportunities to side on the people's side and reduce taxes, and 94 times he voted to increase taxes or not support a tax reduction. 94 times. now, that's not what we need to create jobs and really bolster and heat up our economy. we do need the private sector to be able to keep more of what we earn and produce. government's going to have to learn to be more efficient and live with less if that's what it takes to rein in the government growth that we've seen today. but we do need tax relief, and barack obama even supported increasing taxes as late as last year for those families making only
to be a great investment to have our rate of return of 8%. government taxes, about 1/4 of extra income, to get 8% more each year. government taxes of quarter of it at 2% in real terms, that is pretty high relative to the real interest rate that is actually negative. contribution to gdp, saving from doing when it is the efficient captures a substantial -- captures a substantial part of the cost of necessary public investment. and yes, as the economy starts to grow, as the economy gets out of this phase, it will be necessary to find direct revenue means whether it is taxes or fees on the beneficiary or infrastructure to cover the costs. that need not be the priority right now when the economy is so deficient. let's do it right. we don't know what the economy at is going to be the next ten years, but we do now that we are going to be desperately short on public infrastructure for a decade. let's plan a long-term investment program and financing of that program varies with cyclical conditions as those cyclical conditions evolve. second, let's support employers in hiring workers and employees in taki
. i would say americanness the way. as the well, but does know the way. more efficient tax system would've created much more certainty and a whole bunch of policy. i still think it's doable. the leaders need to say we're going to do it. >> when you think of the outlines of something like simpson/bowles for sure and has to include something is entitlement reform, spending control, tax increases? >> most businesspeople are not partisan, not parochial. we can all spend 20% of the government. i think simpson/bowles is 21%. and none have an system. so simpson/bowles is a far more efficient tax system that gets this huge waste, fiction costs in our society, legal system, uncertainty. so yeah, we would have had better growth and simpson/bowles was four for one or whatever, close enough it would've been good enough. if you get the growth going again, gross people out. >> let's talk about gross. the united states has been out for several years growing at roughly half which you might call the modern historical rate and set up in mid-30s, we are courageous below to give her a tape. if you ar

[applause] thethe st. lawrence seaway connecting the great lakes, opening the great lakes to traffic again had been on the drawing board since the administration of theodore roosevelt and eisenhower -- eisenhower took, assumed the presidency in a time of mccarthyism and incredible communist witchhunt. he did it as he did so many things in the background. it was eisenhower orchestrated the army's response in the army mccarthy hearings. i'm not going to get into a contest but that stunk. and when it was over mccarthy had him vanquished but i think it was the desegregation issue perhaps in which eisenhower most often underestimated. president truman had ordered the army to be desegregated in 1950 but the that the army had not complied. 85% of the army was still segregated when i had to power. ike ordered the military services to desegregate and of course this was a new supreme commander whose words they immediately obeyed. he culminated the segregationists of will service and after brown versus board of education, and he ordered the integration of the
the ability. america knows the way. the more efficient tax system. much more certainty. i still think it is doable. when you think of the alliance of something, is it your sense that it does have to include the entitlement reform, spending, control, tax increases. >> that the most people are not partisan or parochial. we can spend -- 21. 21 percent. obviously you have texas. so it's a far more efficient tax system. this huge waste. i call it fiction cost. no society. the legal system. uncertainty. so i think we would have had better growth. for for one or whenever it was. but it wasn't good enough. exactly right. growth will pay for a lot. >> less talk about it. the united states has been growing at roughly half what you might call the modern historical rate of economic growth. we are growing just below to giver take. if you are advising the next presidency, in a position to more broadly make the case publicly, coupled with things that we ought to do in order to generate double the rate of economic growth. one would obviously be some kind of a comprehensive budget deal. what else woul
means receives will go. is also said that is going to be able to tax loopholes. i'm not a tax expert, but it seems to me that there's an awful lot of those loopholes, and that will help. and again when we're only talking about essentially 1.4% of% of the entire problem, it se a doable doing to fix. you can't fix it in one year. you can fix in four years for sure. so at least i try to answer your question. now, i can't just sit back and listen to some of the stuff and be told in effect well, facts matter but you, dov, you just don't know any facts. first of all, one little fact, i really wonder whether mr. panetta who talked about the smallest number of ships since 1915, said that in a letter to your former boss, senator mccain, would really be happy to give this argument is ridiculous. wasn't a republican who made that case. it was mr. panetta. number one. number two, the navy is going to be bigger because i funded the ships that are being built. it takes a few years to get them out to see. look at the pattern of naval spending, and the number of ships over the next few years. the ai
had when he ran years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle-down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. i will restore the vitality that gets america working again. up next, look at the findings of a new public opinion poll in the american attitude towards muslims and arabs. the polls conducted filing recent violent protests in the arab world that erupted in a film than a gritting islam. our al arabiya news channel was part of this 90 minute event hosted by the brookings institution. >> thanks for coming out on a somewhat dreary fall morning for an event that in many ways is more prodigiously timed today than it was when we planned it, because today that was when we planned it because primitive to candidate governor mitt romney is giving a major foreign policy address earlier today just to the south of casa addressing many of the middle east policy questions that we will be discussing over the course of the day. and i hope that we will be able to take a look at what the public opinion data may rev
the lower courts and the individual mandate was a permissible use of the taxing power of congress and not the congress clause and thus the law could be passed. and i think there were three -- one is, you have to take it at its face value. the legitimate use of the taxing power. thirdly and most important in the second and third, the second is that john roberts saw health care, as many people saw health care, as the third in a trilogy of cases starting with bush beat gore in 2000, citizens united in 2010, obamacare in 2012 and that, and in those first two cases, you had five republican justices dashing the dream's of democrats in what would seem to many as a very partisan case. as they sat down to vote on health care, it looked like the same thing was going to happen, the five republican nominees were going to trash the democratic dream. roberts recoiled at that idea. roberts has a very keen sense of politics in the larger sense and he knew and cared deeply that the supreme court not be regarded as simply another branch of congress, where democrats and republicans fight. he wanted
, sitting next to him, not having dinner, sitting next to al gore is taxing. it is really unpleasant. we asked him what was going on in the white house and he said 1%. i believe it is higher. but if we step back, we often don't know what is going on. that is the dilemma. i want to talk briefly and then answer questions about her new book that i have done, which is just out, called the price of politics. it is about 3.5 years of negotiations between the obama white house and the republicans in congress and the democrats. how they essentially tried to bring the federal government's financial house to some kind of order. the answer is they failed. we have a federal government whose financial house is in total disorder, total disarray. it is a historic problem. to try to put it in english, we have a trillion dollars of iou outstanding in the world. the negotiations, they agreed to raise what they call the debt ceiling, so the government can borrow a couple more trillion dollars. we are going to run it run out of that borrowing authority january or february of next year. they're going to have
stunned that obama didn't mention that last week. and, of course, romney's income taxes and how he made his money at bain consulting. those are all issues i think we will hear from joe biden on. and it is very different than what biden's pass was four years ago, steve, as you recall facing sarah palin. the biggest challenge been for biden was don't patronize sarah palin, don't bully sarah palin certainly, try to a quarter to a certain degree of respect. i think this is a different time, and paul ryan is a different opponent. >> there's been what some are calling the rebuttal as both congressman paul ryan, republican vice president to nominate and vice president biden try to set expectations for the debate on thursday. let me share with you will paul ryan said on the fox news channel late last month. >> he's fast on the cup, he's a witty guy. he knows who he is and he's been doing this for 40 years. so you're not going to rattle joe biden. joe biden on the national stage, he's ran for president twice in a sitting vice president. what i hope to achieve is to give people an alternative. ve
said about taxes, he described a tax cut as the government writing people a check. i hope you don't want, i just want to explain it for him. this is how it works. when people earn money, it's their money, not the governments money. it's their money. [applause] >> don't interrupt. i don't want to lose the thread. [laughter] >> than the government takes some of it away in tax. so if we cut taxes, we are not giving the money. we're taking less of it away, okay? got it? [applause] >> and do you know what? while we are on a, who suffers when a wealthy businessman or operator moves to geneva? not him. it's those who want to work because the jobs come the investment, the growth will go somewhere else.

of massachusetts. while he lowered the tax burden on the people from one of the highest to one of the law were in the united states. that is a major sense of achievement and i admire that and i'm just delighted to be on the ticket with him. governor dukakis and i agree that we ought to have a trade policy for this country. but we've seen this administration more than double the national debt, that they've moved this country from the number one lender nation in the world to the number one destination in the world under their administration. they have not had a faith policy committee of let trade be a handmaiden for the policy objectives of the country. that this country has exported to many jobs and not enough profits. and as i work to pass a trade bill through the united states senate, through roadblocks every step of the way but we passed a trade bill that any country that has full access to the markets we are entitled to full access to their markets. now that means that we are going to stand tough for america and we are going to protect those jobs coming and we aren't a push american product
things right. now, that, the devil is in the detail there but making sure that you don't raise taxes on energy producers. because when you do that you raise taxes for all consumers. again from a manufacturing standpoint, we have a stake in this discussion because we use one-third of this nation's energy output. so every time energy costs increase, the cost of manufacturing increases and adds to the 20% cost disadvantage i mentioned. the regulatory burdens are enormous for the energy industry, and hitting that in check is going to be vital in the next four years. >> that, would you take immigration reform for? >> i would be happy to take the rest of jay's observations about energy policy because for consumers, many of them, difference between whether they can go shopping and spend either mandatory or discretionary spending is the price of gasoline and other commodities but gasoline is the big one and they're certain segments of the retail industry in which you can draw a straight line and an inverse line between the price of fuel and sales that go on and the jobs that get created. so

republicans by congressman paul ryan to cut taxes for the wealthiest 2% in this country, that is the president's responsibility and demonstrated that responsibility. >> the president and vice presidents have never been briefed about the fact that more security, never in the presidential daily briefing? >> matters of security personnel are appropriately discussed and decided upon, those responsible for it. everyone responsible for national security, those knowledgeable about it on capitol hill have been aware of the fact that libya is a dangerous place.

that the president has made. these are taxed on the democrats. chawlz -- [cheering and applause] now, what else are they going to do? harry reid said that, they want to repeal governor romney does the student loan reforms. so if they got a lot in common with medicare. here's what happens, president obama and the congress in 2009 adopted a long-term change in the way students borrowed money to go to college. and it used to be for years and years that the government gave money to the banks in the form of guarantees, we would guarantee 90% of the bank loan that the banks made to the students. set ago is side the reserve in case the money didn't get repaid. it turned out the price of the loans went down and the default rate went down once you made the rates down, people could afford to pay it. we started letting the students to pay it at fixed percentage of north carolina. nobody had to drop out of school because they borrowed money. [cheering and applause] what the president did because he knew we needed more people to get college degrees the cost of college was killing people. we dropped from zen
. we had a history in many states. poll tax, literacy test, bizarre registration hours. we passed the civil rights law to prevent that. the second city right not to have your vote canceled up by someone who is an illegal alien, and died, voting twice, or someone who does not even exist. that to file its your sole rights. we can do both. now, an obstacle to this is to reference the previous speaker on fast and furious, the eric holder justice department. they claim there is no voter fraud america. the clinical want to poll taxes. eric holder himself said that. they are suing any state that they can sing their voter i.d. lot is unconstitutional even and has been up held by the supreme court. so where are we with the lyrical the justice department? a complete stall. well, this is no accident. the president of the united states got his start with these issues. his first major political challenge chicago for barack obama was with a group called project vote, a voter registration effort that registered 135,000 people and illinois in '91 and '92. project vote was allied with and an affil
directly if i told you that mitt romney hasn't paid taxes for x number of years, would it make you more or less likely to vote for him? some% of people either move when they hear that a mesh or they tell you they wouldn't. people telling you that they would move is a pretty sort of conjectural thing. i wouldn't cognitive growth anyone who told you what they would do under hypothetical senate and given some information. they may or may not already know. that's part of the problem with those polls is that asked people if new piece of -- you may or may not already know. and so, or in focus groups you bring somebody in an jafa doesn't people and show them and add and ask them again, did anyone change their mind. and you're pumping somebody to change their mind. and they're being forced to watch an ad that they might otherwise tonight. so using these experiments programs of the obama campaign has, introduce them into the real world. they randomly assigned mail randomly to pay part of the electorate or the assigned tv ads to the mark. been because they're pulling across those markets vacancy

they needed to get another set of computer service. so who did he go to both smart tack. smart tax roll raises an amount of very interesting questions. i went through the returns as deeply studied. there were several lawsuits. you can see when the returns came in that night. and what happened as the night wore on a november 2nd, 2004, was a very, very close election. it was clear the election would come down to who won florida, who won ohio. these are the last two key battleground states. around 11:00, the networks finally called it for florida and that meant there was one crucial state as steaming, ohio. whoever won ohio would win the electoral college. the exit polls were in and they showed kerry winning ohio by 4.2%. suddenly i'm in millions of people started blogging on to the secretary of state's computer in ohio. traffic went through the roof. it went up 700%. that means the computers and cat country and chattanooga, tennessee had kicked in at 11:14 p.m. and suddenly in county after county to report it, there were these striking anomalies. the next 10 counties in a row. this raises a lot

the super pacs. we have no idea who the donors are and where not even going to see those groups file tax returns for another year and a half. through the election will be long over before you ever have any idea how much money they had and even then we will never know who actually put in all that money. just because we don't know doesn't mean that people have benefited from all those donations won't. politicians, most of them, corporations will give money like that, they are expecting a return on investment. just because we don't know doesn't mean they're not expecting gratitude. they will make darn sure people who benefit from the contributions know exactly who they gave to. we have no idea what those people in turn if they went will be doing for that money and we will never be able to tie those things together like we can now when we look at campaign contributions that are made to candidates. we compare those contributions to vote. that will happen with the donations to the 501(c)(4)'s. >> i want to remind everyone who is here in the room with us that you have an opportunity write down
raised gas taxes to pay for road construction, he -- throughout his tenure -- flawed the government to absorb waves of migrants. it is sometimes sad that california during this period roughly from the dust bowl to the end of the second world war, just after the end of the second world war was on the receiving end of the largest peaceful migrationing in human history. there's no way to know for sure how many people arrived in california in that period, but warren liked to say that it was his responsibility to provide for 10,000 new people every monday morning. among those who returned after the second world war were california's japanese, and warren -- who had encouraged their banishment -- also welcomed tear return and saw to it that they were protected as today returned to their lives. he signed the brown act which gave california its open meetings laws, and in a little-noticed act, he signed the bill that ended legal racial segregation in california schools. i'll return to that in just a minute. he was, through all of that, a guy gantically dominant figure in california politics.
buildings and properties in the city which don't pay taxes but use our services and use our roads, put the stress or extra burden on property taxpayers. that is part of the burden they have to bear for being the capital city and some times what the state wants to do doesn't necessarily follow the typical ordnances most businesses and residents have to comply with. city ordinances don't necessarily apply to the state so it can be a fraction point but we try to work through those things and understand the benefits of being the capital city far away from the down side that we have to deal with but the biggest challenge is always jobs and that is true of any community. you have seen what we have to offer. it is a vibrant community and there's a lot going on and a brand-new hospital coming online and brand new courthouse that is a $15 million project and the commerce center down the road that is the major construction. we are going to have a big construction project on the interstate that will make traffic move better and commercial development going on in this city and in the census w
the formal sector is the enemy and start turning the informal sector into the tax revenue for macroeconomic stability, more importantly, sustainable jobs, a terrible economic situation, we are seeing clampdowns turning it into an engine for growth. i think the one-word answer to the question is outrage. when you talk to young people come you spend a lot of time doing that, it's all about that and people get outraged enough about whatever the thing is, subsidies, as was mentioned this morning. that is what gets people out. we do have these checks -- they have been using a little bit of a heavier hand in it a bad way. but, i think -- whatever outrages the population collectively enough, these moments of turbulence and turmoil. >> yeah, i agree with you. i'm not going to belabor it, but i think it is important that when we talk about potential drivers for change or catalyst for change, we have to assign it a certain likelihood or probability. otherwise we could envision all sorts of scenarios that could bring about dramatic change. you know, while i agree with the possibility and the crackdown
and start actually turning the informal sector into a source of tax revenue for macroeconomic stability, but more importantly job, sustainable jobs, you're going to have terrible, um, terrible economic situation if all these countries. and in tunisia we're seeing the exact opposite, a clampdown on the informal sector as opposed to turning it into an engine of growth. i think the correct term is outrage. you talk to young people, it's all about humiliation and, you know, and if people get outraged enough about whatever the thing is, removal of subsidies was mentioned this morning, that's that's what gets people out. you do have these cecks in morocco and algeria which don't exist to the same degree in libya and tunisia in terms of restraint both by the population that doesn't want revolutionary change and by the police which doesn't want to provoke revolutionary change. police forces have gotten a lot better in morocco and algeria, although they've been using a heavier hand in morocco in a bad way. but whatever black swan outrages the population collectively enough is what causes these m

[applause] >> just to be clear, the position is that the institution's money does not go toward the care that they object to, so that is why i see it as an appropriate or a well intentioned and well functioning agreement. the money goes from women's pockets to the insurance that they are part of. while there may be other folks who are a part of the same insurance plans to disagree, that happens a lot of ways. i may disagree with someone else's health care choices. i'm sure there are folks on insurance plans to double even blood transfusions, but part of being part of an insurance plan is that we are all putting your money in and we are trusting that it will be medical treatment that is prescribed by doctors for that person and that we recognize and honor each other's choices about our own health care decisions. >> the institution does not seem to get a choice. thank you. >> thank you. that is all that we really have time for this evening. i'm
enough taxes and foreign buffet really -- why doesn't he write a check and shut up and pay more taxes? i got sidetracked. the way we overcame that adversity -- and in the united states, unemployment. i turned 50 this year and in my lifetime i have never seen unemployment like this. never seen people look for a job. and i get 15 to 20 resumes four over qualified people. those are scary times. we are living in adverse times. on top of that we have this big debt and everything and as corny as it sounds. team work -- not us against them or them against the 4 democrats and republicans how did we get to this point where you have to be a democrat or you have to be a republican? you have to believe all of what these people think for all of what these people think and you can't take it is twices. i believe a little of what you think and a little of what you think because we are two party nation. that is our demise. you can say take this guy and take this guy what he thinks and everybody -- what about congress? what about people in congress who blindly follow a president along party lines regardle
tonight, they love politicians who, want to raise your taxes, right? they love politicians who want to expand in any state. got to check all the boxes here, they love presidents who have a wandering eye. if they have the right political views. they love the lives of at least and by those presidents or politicians of wandering eyes, as long as there is a senate seat attention up for grabs. they love all things communist. i actually had a chance to live in the former soviet union, and i don't really look back on my time in the soviet union with a college student like pine for the days of soviet russia. but you get the sense that some of our friends in the are just like if we can only of those red lines again, that would be awesome. so from castro to gorbachev to other comets things come to mind, obama. no, a rideable yacht me for that. they love this. it brings back today with a could really draw a bright line. the evil united states versus the communitarians in the former soviet union. they love celebrities who, when they hear the word complicated acronyms like gdp, they think gdp, g
property tax. so that puts a burden on the property taxpayer so that puts a burden on the property taxpayer a commercial honor, when you have such a large volume of government -- or a large number of government buildings in properties in the city, which don't pay taxes, but yet use our services, use fire and police and go for it, use our roads, it is a stress or extra burden on property taxpayers. that is part of the burden that the city has to bear or be in the capital city. and of course, sometimes in the state wants to do some thing, it doesn't necessarily follow typical ordinances that most businesses and residents have to comply with state -- you know, city ordinances don't apply to the state. so that can be a friction point on occasion. we try to work through those things and understand the benefits of being the capital city far outweigh some of them i've do we have to do it. the biggest challenge is always jobs and i think that is true of any community. you've been around in the last week. you have to see what we offer. there's a fiber community, lot going on. or going to have a bran
and that is a very common tax by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked hope is not a strategy. he's tried to emphasize his critique of obama as fighting from behind, which was sort of an unnamed administration official at the very end of a new yorker magazine piece last year and has become a sort of state of republican critiques of the president's foreign policy. that being said, there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. for example, romney has russia as an important geopolitical united states. much of the surprise of his advisers at the time, but rather than locking away, just continue to emphasize emphasize and say vladmir putin look at no quarter. barack obama has synthesized as one of his major foreign policy accomplishments, a quote unquote reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, but they are sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a more significant issue with problems of pakistan have made it difficult for us to get for an example or have a new missile -- sorry time a new
college professors failing the test and had to pay a tax and we had to change that. hundreds had been arrested and jailed. my goal organization the student nonviolent coordinating committee better known as sncc.

[applause] and right now there's an attempt for both democrats and republicans to get the postal service to issue a stamp in honor of these three young men. [applause] so, we had to organize and mo

, you can disdegree with him on taxes or whatever, but this is against him personally and trying to destroy and discredit him personally. the obama hate machine. and it's not just fox news. it's out there because of a couple of people that most americans have never heard of, the famous koch brothers, charles -- now-famous, charles and david coke. david koch. and, again, we've seen corporate-sponsored attacks against presidents before, particularly, and i outline two of them, franklin delano roosevelt. by the way, with him it was the dupont brothers, and there were free of those at the -- three of those at the time. formed the liberty league to deny fdr a second term. and then with bill clinton, of course; was richard melon safe who funded all the investigations that led to paula jones and on and on, and the articles in the american spectator. but nothing compared to the money and the organization that we've seen on the part of charles and david koch who are the heads of koch industries, they are the third and fourth richest men in america, people in america, both men. we know abo
then there is a transition tax so they invest in making loans for the economic activity. you put in place incentives so they are not compensating the excess of risk and you have to repeal citizens united and get politics out of the system.

[laughter] you mentioned that wamu has no friends in washington, d.c.. how do we have our own representatives such as cantwell? >> this is a good question and i've competed some journalists reporting on the stories we reached out on multiple occasions because after wamu collapsed she made a big show coming out saying we are going to leave this investigation into this collapse. we'll go to the guilt what happened, and so she is extremely quiet on everything and didn't do anything for the bookkeeper and is just basically to my knowledge kind of ignored it. as the mick would you think of the aftershocks scenario to the u.s. economy and how will the affect the too big to fail banks and if i read this right, the rest of us. >> the after shock. >> i can speculate on what it is, the lingering depression, the slowdown in asia, and the fact th
or as one might say, the young suckers who are taxed to pay for god standard of benefits for older retired people, but who may not see such benefits for themselves when they are in the same situation. and this is really the problem that is leading to liberalism's fiscal implosion. as mrs. thatcher equipped we are running out of other peoples' money. finally, obama is a child of the '60s. literally. he was born in 1961, to an interracial couple, his father was a ken began socialist, and anticolonialist and -- his mother was a dreamy flower child who eventually earned a doctorate in cultural anthropology her adviser was john due wee's granddaughter. as they say, you can't make this stuff up. [laughter] for obama, the 1960s ran until the early 1980s until success of ronald reagan became clear. as a young man, obama suffered a kind of '60s envy. he missed out on the civil rights movement, and on the new left. but he determined to experience them vicariously. and so he tried drugs, as he confesses in his autobiography. he rallied against south africa, he gave political speeches, he community or

taxes. in fact, he had raised taxes when he got in there and discovered that, in fact, the state's finances were much worse than anyone had predicted. and when they went to the rockefellers to ask to give a fund-raiser, he was rebuffed. and gaston is a politician and so understands how these things work, but rachael was very hurt by that and so said, you know, that "they're welcome in our homes but not in our hearts," and i thought that that was a pretty honest reaction to what a lot of people in politics must feel but never say. c-span: what about the following quote? what will this do to either their relationship or just the image of a political situation? "exasperated and exhausted, she told her assistant what sharon rockefeller had said, that when she had been the state's first lady she had attended only high-profile events with guaranteed media coverage." >> guest: i heard sharon rockefeller say that and i think it's probably smart because when you're a political spouse and there's a lot of demand on your time -- and sharon rockefeller also wanted to lead her own life and th
